DAVID BOWIE – SPACE ODDITY (2019 MIX)

NEW VIDEO TO PREMIERE AT NASA EVENT COMMEMORATING THE 50th ANNIVERSARY OF THE MOON LANDING.

A new David Bowie video for the 1969 breakthrough single Space Oddity will be premiered at a NASA event at The Kennedy Center in Washington on 20th July. The premiere will commemorate 50 years since Apollo 11 landed on the Moon, as well as the 50th anniversary of Space Oddity’s original release.

The video features footage of David Bowie performing Space Oddity at his 50th birthday concert at Madison Square Garden in 1997 (directed by Tim Pope), married to footage shot and directed by Eduaord Lock (the founder and choreographer of the Montreal dance troupe La La La Human Steps), for the onscreen back drop of Bowie’s 1990 Sound & Vision tour.

The 1990 footage was projected on to the large screens throughout the Sound & Vision tour, featuring David effectively performing Space Oddity with himself, a performance replicated at his 50th Birthday Concert. The audio that accompanies the video is the new 2019 mix of Space Oddity by long-time Bowie producer Tony Visconti.

The video will debut at National Symphony Orchestra Pops Apollo 11: A Fiftieth Anniversary—One Small Step, One Giant Leap on 20th July and will be streamed on YouTube shortly after the show has finished.

The event will be Hosted by Mythbusters’s Adam Savage and will feature appearances by Pharrell Williams, Mark Armstrong, son of the late Neil Armstrong and astronauts on the International Space Station will see the premiere of a new work by Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino (Up, The Incredibles, Mission Impossible, Star Wars; Rogue One).

The new audio mix of Space Oddity is released on 12th July as part of a 50th anniversary double 7” box set.

The set includes a replica of the ultra-rare original promotional UK sleeve housing single 1 and a new sleeve containing single 2 featuring a Ray Stevenson shot of David taken on stage during a performance of Space Oddity at the ‘Save Rave ‘69’ concert at the London Palladium on 30th November, 1969, in front of a backdrop featuring a NASA astronaut.

The anniversary edition also includes a double-sided poster featuring an alternative version of aforementioned Ray Stevenson shot at the London Palladium and an original Space Oddity print advertisement. There’s also an information card and a print featuring an alternative shot by Jojanneke Claassen from the Space Oddity promo single cover session.
